For the Love of Dirt

Here’s why I love spring: the spring planting yields autumn harvest which yields photos like these…

This is Todd and his 90 lb pumpkin.

Todd gets really excited to garden. He spends HOURS planning the layout and the variety (usually during church…for the inspiration, I guess…). And every evening in the summer, when I think he should be home from work and he isn’t yet, I just have to look out the back window and he’s been home for 40 min; he’s out in the garden checking up on things.

I just love my “gentleman farmer” husband.

Carrie, that is one impressive pumpkin! I had no idea when you married Todd that he would be such a "Farmer Brown." It's so cool! I have also eaten some of the fresh goodies from your garden and they were so good! The only thing we grow to any size here in Houston is fire ant mounds!

These pictures make where we live look so lovely. I'm impressed that Todd can lift 90 lbs up over his shoulder like that. It seems like a lot.

To be fair to the pumpkin, the one on my shoulder is not the same one as the one in the wheelbarrow. It's a bit lighter than 90 pounds. While the picture may make me look like a strapping young hip farmer, underneath it all is really a computer programmer's body--much like the pumpkin's physique actually.

You, your pictures and your produce make me miss Utah very, very much!

I love your big, beautiful garden. I love your pumpkins and your darling husband who loves to "farm". I love your house and you and that you love me and my kids and, and, and...I don't love your dogs. I'm sorry.
